Lectures

Proving God

Deductive Proof of Monotheism
Presenting, explaining, and defending a simple proof that a rational, omnipotent, omniscient creator God exists, and that there is only one such God.

Proving the Son of God

Deductive Proof of the Shared Deity of the Image of God
It's easy to prove that a creator God exists, but in this lecture, in addition to deductively proving that God exists, all of McCabe's deductive arguments will be combined to demonstrate the deductive necessity of not just God, but also of His Son.

Presuppositional Apologetic Methodology

How to Discern the Most Critical Differences Between Worldviews
Presuppositional reasoning is often mocked, ridiculed, and misunderstood. However, it is one of the best ways to accurately represent both one's own view, and one's opponent's view. It is also particularly adept at enabling the apologist to discern the root of error in the non-Christian's view.

Attributes of God

What is God Like?
Dealing with complex theological difficulties, this presentation covers God's omnitemporality, omnipresence, omniscience, omnipotence, and moral character. Dealing with common objections such as the Euthyphro Dilemma, knowledge of tensed facts, and whether omnipotence entails contradictions, these difficult abstract concepts will become much simpler.

Is God Evil?

Stephen Law's Evil God Challenge Dismantled
Even if we grant that God exists, why should we think that God is good rather than evil? The question is actually far sillier than it seems at first and, in analyzing the question, the foundations for Christian thought will be brought to light in stark contrast to the foundations of humanism.

In Printed Form

"What is an easy way to demonstrate that open theism is false?"

Open theism is the belief that god exists, but does not know the future outcomes of human choices. Instead, he finds out about them when they happen. Open theism renders all human conclusions completely irrational. A god who does not know what the future holds clearly did not design the future. And if he did not design the future, then there is no good reason to believe that it must behave in the way he wants it to behave.

"Why does Jesus, when riding into Jeruselum (Matthew 21:7) ride on two things at once, the ass as well as the colt. Why does he ride both at the same time, and what does it teach us? Where also does it fit in in the 4 categories of 2 Timothy 3:16?"

Here are the relevant passages from the NASB: Matthew 21:6-7 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them, and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on the coats. Mark 11:7 They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it. Luke 19:35 They brought it to Jesus, and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it.

"It seems when we examine real objects close enough, they become illusory at the quantum level. Also, the self seems to be an illusion in the strictest sense. Yet it is also real since it exists. What is the difference between reality and illusion?"

Both "reality" and "illusion" are simply words. As words, they carry the definitions that their speakers intend for them to have, and that their listeners read into them. What this means is that "reality" and "illusion" both have multiple meanings, and their definitions in a particular circumstance must be determined by context. For example, I could say that my brother is real, a part of reality. I could say that Tom Sawyer is not real.
